Fugitive Stories continues its special brand of non-competitive storytelling at Kickstand Cafe in Arlington. We bring Moth and Massmouth winners, along with others from the local community, to share their stories. Do you want to tell your story on our theme? Sign up Kickstand or fill out our form online. We'll get back to you to let you know if you're in. We also invite audience members who are interested in telling a four- to five-minute story on our theme to drop their name in a hat. If chosen, they’ll tell their tale.
July Theme: “Some Like It Hot”
Do you like your food spicy? Do you adore the hot sun on your skin? Do you like stripping down to almost nothing and feeling the sweat drip from you body? Do you like having “relations” in places that might surprise others (or even yourself)?
This month we feature the women who make Massmouth happen. They work tirelessly to bring live storytelling to multiple locations while, at the same time, partnering with WGBH-TV to co-produce "Stories from the Stage."
Cheryl is a former resident of Arlington and fan of cycling and rollerblading on the Minuteman trail. When not outside, she is on the phone and email organizing storytelling events for Massmouth, a local nonprofit that promotes the timeless art of storytelling — which can now can be seen on PBS television nationwide.
Katie is a co-coordinator for Massmouth. As a storyteller, she’s performed in over 80 shows across eight states. She’s also a freelance journalist whose work has appeared in the New York Times, the Boston Globe, and other publications. Katie was the 2016 Massmouth “Big Mouth-Off” champion.
Theresa Is a Wisconsin native, a yoga teacher, a social worker, a storyteller, and the co-host of WGBH & Massmouth's Stories from the Stage — the first nationally televised TV show dedicated entirely to live storytelling. She works in nonprofit development, and also owns and operates a small business called LEGIT.yoga, where she provides trauma-informed yoga to people at Boston-area homeless shelters, low-income housing communities, and alternative schools. She loves sandwiches, hammocks, crafting cocktails, cooking without a recipe, and laughter.
